    Cool!! Any link/artwork to this info?
    I just wish the Aerodyne kit had the correct dash, They all seem to have the early K100 layout but not the correct Aerodyne dash layout
    Can't wait!

    Thanks for that info. 
    Looks like I will be scratch-building the sucker!!
    After more research I definitely think the kit dashes are earlier model K100's, but not the Aerodyne which all had a slightly different/updated layout as in the pics.

    Revell K100 Dash
    Hi Guys. 
    Can anybody tell me if the dash in the Revell K100 Aerodyne kit is the same as in the AMT kit? It appears to be an older model KW dash? I'm not sure if the Aerodyne/flat top had the same interior/dash or if it was a unique layout? Is there an aftermarket option available? Not liking my chances, could be a bit tough to scratch a whole new one, certainly for me.
    This what the kit dash appears to replicate, seems like an older model KW?

    this is the kit dash

    This is the Aerodyne Dash, possibly most K100's? 

    I have more photos but any ideas if there is a different dash/interior is available?

    Nice work William!

    The 'Bear' figure form the 1/32 kit is way too oversized for that actual kit it comes in. It would be much more suited to the 1/25th kit or this size.

    Guitar strings are also great for hoses, lines etc. And being an avid guitarist, I have plenty laying around! They come in different sizes too.

    The rims are Ben Wicker designed and were machined by Jim Littiken. I then had them sent back to Ben after Jim machined them and he cleaned them up and also polished them. I love em! The hubs are also Ben Wicker.

    Thanks Dennis and Jaroslav, your comments are much appreciated. Scott, I've seen those hinges of yours, they're great and will have a crack at doing them myself also.

    I have been still fiddling with the aftercooler area and have knocked up another attempt using parts from an Italeri kit. I am happy with it but now my problem is seeing they are 1/24 scale, they may well be too big for the revell engine? On a dry fit, it may end up being too high and too wide, but will persevere at the moment. Here's some pics. The black part is the Italeri kit part.

    I have posted these before in a separate thread but here's some shots of my aluminium wheels that I've had made

    On a separate note and pardon me for my lack of knowledge but can anyone tell me what this is and what is it's purpose? I notice it's on some Cummins and not others?

    BJ's rig had a Cummins NTC400BC. Does anyone know if this part is standard on that motor or should it be left off?

    Still alive!!!

    Thanks for the interest guys.

    This is my pet project and I've never built a truck model before(apart from a 1/32 BJ kit) so want to get it right. But yes it's been a long time since I've updated and even worked on it. I have still been sourcing aftermarket parts such as the Ben Wicker aluminum wheels, I posted shots of that in another thread titled "Aluminum 10-hole Alcoas". They are awesome so thanks to Ben and Jim Littiken for those.

    Been hell busy as I'm trying to get into the Australian Army as a helicopter pilot so it's taking a lot of my focus, that and my new baby girl Charlie, free time is hard to find!!! Enough excuses though.

    I have completely changed the work I've done on the motor again! I have got a hold of a few pieces from an Italeri Cummins which I'm incorporating into the Revell motor. I will try and post some pics of that tomorrow. I sometimes think my vision far exceeds my skill level though, especially when I see fine work like Sergey's "Love Machine" build for instance. That is some master work.

    I need to get cracking.

    I found out the hard way about cats and models not mixing. I had about 8 helicopters all sitting nicely on top of a feature wall about 8ft high until I came home from work one day and my cat had systematically knocked off every single one!! He wasn't popular for a while that's for sure!!

    Yes cheers. 13/64 would be an option too if you can tubing that size? 13/64 is 5.15mm
